But a fuse would make the part not work at all right? Mine work when the car is on but no longer work with it off? Like power locks and dome light

Nevermind that for now you have a smart junction box under left side of dash which has relays for interior lights.

Power locks are with SJB too with relays for locks. You say locks work with key on? What about accessory position?
